Hey y’all, it’s Laura here. I’m coming from Oklahoma to share a clean and simple fall card. This card was inspired by Heather Nichols. I loved the tone on tone die cut background of a recent card she did. So I decided to take the inspiration and make my own card.
The supplies you will need:
- Baronial Ivory Cardstock
- Basis Brown Cardstock
- Adhesive of your choice
- Fall Stamp
- Coordinating Ink
- Dies of your choice
You can use any metal dies or cut files. Choose the color of your card panel first, and then die cut the images out of the same color. I chose to go with Baronial Ivory Cardstock. I used my mini die cutting machine to easily cut these images. Die-cut more than you think you need.
I then arranged all the pieces of my pre-trimmed card panel. I made sure to have some hanging off all the sides.
I then used Press n Seal to capture all the images and used tiny dots of liquid glue. I then hovered this over the Ivory panel and placed it down. Since the Press n Seal is see-through it helps with aligning. Make sure to burnish all the pieces and then slowly lift the Press n Seal. Trim off the excess.
After this panel is done, I trimmed some Basis Brown Cardstock to be a little bit bigger than this panel. I used Plus Tape Runner to adhere the card panels and onto the card base.
For my sentiment, I found a stamp that I got years ago at the Target dollar spot. I cut a rectangle to about the size of the stamp and stamped it with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. I used leftover die cuts of the Ivory cardstock and I also die cut some vellum leaves. I put some foam tape behind the sentiment and arranged how I wanted the leaves behind the sentiment and stuck it done lightly. I then lifted it all up and added some liquid glue behind it and then pressed firmly to make sure everything stuck to the background.
I didn’t have any embellishments that would go with this color scheme. So I found these pearls that I got at Walmart and used a gold metallic Sharpie to color over them. I tried to color them with regular Sharpies and alcohol markers, but they didn’t work. I added three of them to the empty space on the sentiment.
And that completes this card for today. If you like this card make sure to leave a comment below and follow us on social media. Y’all have a wonderful day.
